Very tasty! Perfumey plums, light lambic funk, barnyard funk. Absolutely delicious. Gooood stuff! 4.3
Bottle shared at 3F. Bit hazy yellow golden with small white head. Massive amount of reine Claude plums in here...! Soft lemon, funk, mineral, light wheat, light spicy yeast, light vanilla and green leaves. Medium sour, light bitter and very light sweet. Medium bodied with sparkly carbonation. You really get tons of Reine Claude (one of my favorite plums). Great!!
Hazy golden with a ring white head. Aroma of ripe plums, perfume, dry cellar funk, tart plums and mineral notes. Flavour is light to moderate sweet and moderate sour. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Sampled between ratebeer and brewver, so didnt take much notes other than the score.
Slicznie pachnie, ale za wytrawne, za puste w uscie. I jakies takie mineralne. 3.9?
Plum lambic in the latest string of 3F’s “Twists of Fate” (July 2019), this one without the plum kernels being included – so I expect a softer, sweeter, juicier and less astringent effect than in the one with kernels. Very thin and open, egg-white, ‘interrupted’, quickly disappearing head over a cloudy ‘old gold’ coloured beer with deeper peachy hue, shifting to an overall beige ‘muddiness’ as the end of the bottle comes in sight. Aroma of indeed a lot of sweet ripe blue plums, sour grapes, dry hay, lime, homemade plum wine, dry sherry, touch of ‘Bretty’ urine. Estery onset, green plums, gooseberries and sour apples, acidic on the edges, softly carbonated with a somewhat vinous mouthfeel; supple bready wheatiness underlies an ongoing sour fruity and lactic acidity and astringency, but the plum does add a lot of retronasal fruitiness too. Lovely grass silage-, mineral- and dusty old wood-like elements in the finish, rich and a bit earthy, but remaining soaked in juicy, tart ‘plumminess’. Plum lambics are a modern invention and still underrepresented in the lambic world, but when compared with e.g. Tilquin’s Oude Quetsche (the first one and the most obvious one springing to mind), this one seems more minerally and a tad less funky, but more heavily ‘plummed’ as well. The colourful plum effects are in any case more bright, more straightforward and more ‘playful’ than in the version with kernels (XI.ii), because that one was an altogether very different lambic.
